New Amazing Adventures Printing

Fri Dec 19, 2014 12:59 am

So I didn't see this anywhere yet, but since I have my pdf of the new printing I just wanted to say it is fantastic. Jason really worked his tail off on this thing, and it is revised and better than before. For example, the pugilist was revamped to be more westernized and less like the monk class, and I love what he did there. If you didn't get in on the kickstarter, you have to invest in at least the pdf. So far my only complaint is that the font is so small, even smaller than the original I think, which is an editorial choice, not Jason's. I would think that with the newer C&C line getting the royal treatment with not only color, but larger easier to read font, would translate to all the new kickstarter books, especially a new game like AA. I wouldn't complain about this normally, but I am getting old and blind. :shock: I reallllly expected this book to have a larger font. Okay...old man complaining is over. Back to the coolness.

So far, this game is rock solid, with lots of features to port over to your C&C game. I normally use skill based systems for my pulp adventures (Gurps, Savage Worlds, etc) but I just really dig the feel of this thing and am going to run some games for the family and the next con. Excellent work Jason! I am really looking forward to the companion for this.

Yeah, Pete opted to reduce the font size and do some other creative spacing tricks to keep the page count the same. The new printing is actually about 30,000 words longer (more content) than the first print. The goal, I believe, was to keep the book still very readable (and I actually like the new layout, overall) but save you guys some bucks by not having to pay for a higher page count.

Just to clarify, here, they re-laid out the PDF with a larger font size comparable to that in the new C&C books. This better reflects the expanded content and makes it a LOT easier to read.

Do we have an estimate on how long before the hardcover comes out?

Hey, everyone,

Sorry I keep being away for extended periods. If I can be brutally honest, I always just forget to check forums these days. It's a bad habit I need to break.

The core book and monster book are at press now. The companion has just completed layout and should be headed into Steve's hands soon for PDF release, with print to follow shortly thereafter. If you are not following us at Facebook, you should be--we post daily (or almost) with things that are inspirational for your game, info about the pulps in general, and all the news updates you can shake a stick at for AA. Peter Bradley, in fact, just posted the finished cover art for the Companion today.

I'm not on FB, so could that material get cross posted to the G+ TLG community?

It should be getting cross-posted. I think Joey Mullins is handling that. I'm not on G+. I really abhor everything about that service.

Quickstart rules? For AA? I know there were rules for Victorious released, but I don't think we've released new AA Quickstart rules.

Or are you talking about Ashton and the Augments, which was released awhile back (I think as a stretch goal with the C&C kickstarter)? If so, that was for the first printing of AA, though the module will still work just fine.
